I Belize in MAGIC! MITSUGIRLY revisits the Western Route. My Novel.

Ship pic tutorial 

I start from the lowest deck and work my way up to the top. Sometimes I do miss things or forget that I haven't taken a picture of a place and this time would not be an exception to that rule. Sorry.

 

DECK 3: Lobby

 

The atrium area. Probably the most photographed area of any ship and I would not be the exception to that rule.

These are 2 of Sakari's favorite pictures on the ship. They were 3D and I told her how I used to create pictures like this when I was little. My mom would go to the store and buy wrapping paper (usually something with animals on it or Hobbie Girl) and we would pick a pattern and cut them out. Over and over again. Then use this special rubber silicone glue and glue them on top of each other, creating different layers to make it 3D. Sakari loved that idea and wants to do this with me. I hope I can find a good pattern with something to use and we can do this together. We've been pretty crafty/artsy lately.

Let's go back to deck 4. I forgot THE WAREHOUSE, which is a game room, is located on this deck but for some reason Carnival doesn't list it as a place on their website (although it is on the blue prints).

Now I believe this might be the "future cruise desk" but I'm not 100% sure. I never did see anyone sitting here or people around this area and I didn't even notice what it was until...actually the day we were walking off the ship. I don't even remember hearing any announcements saying to come here to book a cruise like they normally do. Maybe they didn't have a rep there that week?

IMG_2581 copy.jpg

Now on to one of my favorite places, of course, the CASINO.

PB141364 copy.jpg

I have to say that almost every cruise I seem to do fairly well and by well I mean walking out with more than I came in with for the entire cruise. I don't care if it's $20 or $200. Walking out with more than you came there with and played and had fun all week doing so is winning in my book.

 

However, this cruise would be different. I actually lost a total of $200 in the casino during the week (and we play every night). But, we had fun doing it.

 

There were a few games that no matter when I played them, they treated me well, hit the extra spins and free games and kept me playing for quite some time (like sometimes an hour!).

 

These are two of the games (BLACK WIDOW AND DAKOTA).

PB141367 copy.jpg

There was another BLACK WIDOW game that is located right in front of the bar in the "smoking" section with tables and it also did very well.

PB141365 copy.jpg

Wow those eyes look evil.

PB141369 copy.jpg
PB141370 copy.jpg

These are some others that did pretty well and everyone seemed to want to play these and would jump on them as soon as they could. Heidi was always hitting the free spins and giving away her "free beer", which was money. It was a lot of fun.

This Hot Shot game is one of the first games I had ever played and gambled on with the hubby back years ago. The hubby and I went on a short land vacation in Canada and there was a casino down the street that had several of these. They would hit over and over and I loved playing them. Well, these days you always see the updated version of Hot Shot and never the "original". Well, these are some of the originals, so they must be pretty old. They were fun playing, but didn't hit anything worth mentioning. They just brought back some old memories of when the hubby first met.

PB141483 copy.jpg

Here's some pictures of the decor/paintings in the hallways (at least on my floor).

 

I have to be honest, I really loved them and the colors. Sakari is a huge "bird lover" and is always drawing birds. She loved these and was always looking at them as we passed by.

 

I also loved the colors they used because Sakari and I have been doing some watercolor paintings recently and it kinda reminded me of our paintings.

PB170342 copy.jpg

Now you be the judge...these are some of our paintings we did just prior to the cruise. They are colorful just like the decor on the walls in our hallway.

I think we are going to have some ideas the next time we do a painting (by looking at some of these pictures from the Magic). :D

Like I said, this ship is just loaded with green everywhere.
